 We Are 


Our music tastefully blends vintage bossa nova with jazz standards, classical references, chansons, ballades and own compositions. We arrange selections of diverse pieces in mashups, improvise and harmonize in two voices. Although some of our songs can be pretty melancholic, in others we sometimes make the singers burst out laughing while performing - which is not very practical, yet funny!


The duet Nathalie Musardo (voice) as figurehead and Johannes Röhrenbach (piano) as captain are the core of The Blue Crew, mostly performing in mixed combinations with other musicians on sax, bass, cajón and further percussion.


Italo-French Nathalie and German Johannes met in Zurich, are polyglot but speak Italian together and share loads of similar tastes, the most important probably being a certain Latin lifestyle.


She is a professional choir conductor, classical mezzo-soprano, chanson and jazz vocalist, arranger, teaches and writes about music. He is a versatile pianist, classical tenor, jazz singer, songwriter but also mathematician, entrepreneurship, board game and boating enthusiast.

The duo was soon joined by friends of friends they had met at jam sessions: Olf Kramer, an engineer and former guitarist who has happily converted to the tenor saxophone, and Daniel Hernandez, a percussionist of Peruvian origin - like his cajon - who is sometimes backed up by the Bahian Gecy Marty.


The bassist Felix Kübler - affectionately known as Kü by the classical and jazz scene - has recently joined the crew, as well as the gentleman pianist Steve Zwygart, who sometimes replaces Johannes.

Before them, we used to play with Robin Müller and Bruno Liechti, and recorded in the studio with our sound engineer and producer Emiliano Larrea.


We regularly hold jam sessions, in summer on the shores of Lake Zurich, when not on a boat. On land, we perform in various clubs, concerts, at festivals, in church for musical meditations or in lounge music for private events.
